Pink Christmas Door 07692
For my first card, I made a Christmas wreath on a pink woodgrain door. The wreath was made by using circle dies to make a ring then I die cut all the foliage from the Lovely Leaves dies, the little pinecones from the Fancy Foliage dies, and the little flowers from the Christmas Candles dies and attached them all to the ring. A white bow was die cut using the Small Bow die, added on top of the wreath & a large pearl brad (I colored it w/ a pink Copic) was attached in the center of the bow.

Merry Snowflakes cu 07679
Weekly-Favorite  Best of 2015 SCS
On my second card, I used white heat embossing on tan (lt kraft) card stock. After embossing the beautiful Flourished Merry Christmas, I die cut it w/ one of the matting basics, used a large corner rounder punch on it then used the white ink around the edges & embossed it, as well.Merry Snowflakes 07677
The Snowflake Border was also white embossed then die cut. I added some white embossed snowflakes to accent the Medium Bow & upper corner. The larger one was die cut & the smaller two were fussy cut. A paper crimper was used on the white horizontal band.
